At noon on saturday around 12.00 a.M. A 23-year-old man from the district of tirschenreuth was driving a BMW on the B 22 from kemnath in the direction of bayreuth. In a long right-hand bend shortly after lettenhof, the young man overtook several vehicles in front of him in rain and wet road conditions. He obviously underestimated the space he needed for his overtaking maneuver.
During an overtaking maneuver, traffic became so tight that a 27-year-old driver of a ford fiesta had to brake hard on the oncoming lane to avoid a collision. A 21-year-old driver from the district of neustadt/waldnaab was unable to brake his opel astra in time and collided with the ford fiesta.
